Re: Kickstarters

I keep coming back to that Yema. It's a great 3 hand sports watch, with a very cool vintage vibe. It would be nice if it came with a bracelet, but the lugs would lend themselves to a straight end-link bracelet, making fitting something that looks 'correct' quite easy.

Re: UPDATE UPDATE: Should I sell my stuck C60 600 Pro COSC SH21 - 60/60 Guarantee denied at 5th Year - A Happy Ending

All in all a good outcome for NeWard. However, I think this post and others like it highlight two things that need to happen at CW: 1) CW needs to establish some clarity on the warranty situation for watches purchased prior to the change, and ensure that it is communicated clearly to customers if th...

Re: Dilemma

I think it would be worth it to repair the crown prior to sale. The bigger question is does it make sense financially to do a complete movement service prior to the sale (with commensurate price increase), or to just repair the crown/crown tube?

Re: UPDATE: Should I sell my stuck C60 600 Pro COSC SH21 Red Bezel 1 of 32 - 60/60 Guarantee denied at 5th Year

This refusal to honour the manufacturers guarantee. Other threads refusing 60/60 returns on unworn watches. A thread on CWE about a watch being returned post-service with a different, damaged bracelet (and CW refusing to remedy the situation). It seems like CW customer service is in serious need of ...

Re: Interesting afternoon…

Looks like a great car Steve. It's a shame that, thanks to a never ending need for trucks and SUV's, we no longer get the Yaris or Honda FIt/Jazz (arguably the 2 best subcompacts you can buy) in North America. My fellow North Americans can't wrap their heads around the idea that you should buy the v...

Just for balance - those saying that the 60/60 should be removed from advertising now as it is only 3 to 4 years are being slightly unfair. Any guarantee/warranty can have conditions attached. Kia advertise a 7 year warranty on their vehicles but if something goes wrong 4 years in and the car has n...

Re: ctm1967 Collection Nov 2021

That Boldr is quite interesting. I've never seen a watch with respiration and pulsation scales before. As a medical professional I find pulsation dials interesting, even if they are not practical anymore, and have considered retrofitting my Speedy with a pulsation bezel. A quick search reveals that ...

Re: New Tudor Pelagos FXD

If it’s made for military divers why showcase it as if it’s for the general public. Yes move on. We’ll never agree. You like it. I dont. Its a silly design . For the same reason that other military designs are advertised to the general public: because some people want to buy them. I guess in your w...

Re: Tribus Orders

The A10 is a drop in for the ETA 2892 although I don't think it is a direct copy. It is just the same size with the fittings in the correct places. I did not know it was a direct replacement. This makes sense, as my A10 and 2892 are my smoothest winding watches. "Like butter" is a good de...

Re: Same Watch Different Color

I own 2 C6's (black and yellow dial) and 2 C60's (white dial / red bezel and a bronze). Why not but a green 3-hander to compliment your white GMT? You can justify it as they aren't the same watch.

Re: Most overrated watches right now…

I'm not sure how anyone can say a CAD $20 (15USD, 12 GBP) watch is overrated. Any watch that tells time and costs less than a decent takeout meal can't be overrated. I knew the Speedy was on the list. Overrated? I don't think so. That's why I bought one. Overhyped? yes. I blame Omega and their "...
